you continue to post stuff I only dream of, right now. I like the first two the best.

Thanks a bunch.

Did you also use the 40mm on the bees on the flowers recently?

Those were with the 100L and a 250D. AI Servo also work with that combo. I've become a great fan of AI Servo for macro, so I'm interested to find other lenses that work that way.

Thanks for mentioning that lens as a cheaper macro option. I'm surprised to learn the kit 18-55 lens allows me to get about 5" from the front of the lens to the subject. Our local rose garden is at peak now, so I've been trying to get bee and rose combinations.

Yeah, go for it, let us see what you get. You know there's a monthly macro thread in the lens forum? (e.g. June) I didn't like the results I got with the original 18-55 IS. Generally, zooms aren't much good for macro, but the STM version would be worth checking out.

The ants from oz appear similar to what we have. I know the birds you have there make ours pale in comparison.

We do have a lot of wonderful birds, but yours are just as exotic to me. 

Thanks for sharing these, Mike
